The U.S. Army is privatizing its hotels, turning their renovation, development and operations over to the private sector, a move that began with a 2009 lease agreement in an effort to improvement their quality and consistency, The Washington Post reported.
In the Washington area, the hotel privatization effort is already coming to Fort Myer in Arlington and Fort Belvoir in Fairfax.
At Fort Myer, Wainwright Hall is being coverted from a small 18-room inn into a larger and more modern 31-room hotel.
Construction is set to begin shortly on one new hotel at Fort Belvior — a Staybridge Suites — as well as renovation of an existing facility into a Holiday Inn Express, according to The Post.
